Swimmers in this program will learn the basics of being part of a swim team: dives, turns, reading the pace clock, circle swimming, and understanding workouts and sets. No meets are required for this group.
A try out is required to join this program. Tryouts are done on Mondays at 7:00 pm and Tuesday's at 6:00pm at Wilson AEC by appointment only. Please email Shauna@santaclaraswimclub.org to set up a tryout appointment. .

Practice Times: Once you have been enrolled in PreComp you will need to make a minimum of two practices a week but you can come for all five practices up to five days a week.
